Mawaqif Qatar wins giant car park contract

Msheireb Properties, a subsidiary of Qatar Foundation, said it has signed up Mawaqif Qatar to operate and manage car parking facilities at Msheireb Downtown Doha (MDD), an urban regeneration development located in the heart of the capital.

As per the deal, Mawaqif Qatar will offer more than just parking space management as car parks will not be standalone facilities, but part of the mobility chain, digitally integrated to enable MDD to become a smart city, stated the Qatari developer .

This is an extremely important milestone, comprising the integration and future management of one of the world’s largest underground car parks in the world – providing over 10,000 car parking spaces over six basements to residents and visitors of MDD, said Abdulla Hassan Al Mehshadi, the chief executive of Msheireb Properties after signing the agreement with Gilles Guillochon, CEO of Mawaqif.

Mawaqif Qatar’s mission is to bridge the gap between the cars and the smart city, delivering the highest standard of customer services, stated Al Mehshadi.

With a wealth of global experience behind them via Indigo of France and locally through their experience of managing and operating the country’s prime car parks, they have the proficiency to operate and maintain the parking facilities at MDD and to sustain reliable operating conditions based on high-end supervision digital solutions, using a remote management approach, he noted.

Al Mehshadi pointed out that its partnership with one of the Middle East’s leading traffic and car park management companies was very important to the company.

"It enables us to design and operate a five-star car park, offering our community a first class parking and visitor experience. A project of this magnitude requires a specialised skill set, industry experience and innovative ideas to ensure it is perfectly managed," he noted.

On the tieup, Guillochon said: "We are delighted to bring our specialised knowledge and expertise into this transformative development. We aim to enhance customer experiences, by ensuring a smooth flow of traffic with efficient systems, and well maintained parking areas."

"The visitor experience has always been a top priority for us, and we strive to deliver exceptional services, matching the vision of Msheireb Properties," he added.

Msheireb Properties said it aspires to transform the urban landscape, creating an iconic landmark that respects the environment and local surroundings, preserves cultural traditions, and enhances the quality of life for communities.

"We are delighted to have partnered with Mawaqif Qatar for this hugely significant component of the MDD offering. We look forward to celebrating many more milestones, continuing to forge new partnerships to add value to the community, delivering the essential services to the people of Qatar, for the future of Qatar," he added.

The developer’s flagship project, MDD aims to offer a lively urban neighbourhood featuring premier office space, retail services, leisure facilities, luxurious townhouses, upscale apartments, hotels, museums, civic services, cultural offerings and entertainment areas.

The units in the Phase I are now available for leasing, said the developer.-TradeArabia News Service
